Survival Pop Quiz

Survival Pop Quiz


Tonight on my radio program I covered what I affectionately called a 20 question “Pop Quiz” for the prepper crowd and the positive reaction prompted me to make sure I posted the questions, all to be answered yes or no, and let you decide just how ready you might be. I hope you can answer yes to all of them honestly and then review your own plans if not!

1. Do you have at least or more than 3 months worth of food stored at home?

2. Do you have at least three months of your salary stored in barter, cash, gold, or silver?

3. Do you have a vehicle and fuel capacity to travel at least 400 miles on short notice?

4. Do you have short range two way communications gear (2-10 mile radius) and a system for family and friends? This could be as simple as code words or even a signal flashlight for night time use with colored lenses.

5. Does every member of your household have a pair of boots that have been hiked in, broken in, with good socks, and waterproofed?

Do you own firearms, both pistol and long rifle or shotgun, to protect your household?

7. If yes to 6, have you cleaned them recently and have the capacity to maintain the weapons in the field under duress?

8. Do you own a shortwave receiver or are you an amateur radio operator with good equipment?

9. Do you have paper maps (preferably laminated), books, or guides which display terrain level information on old and new rail paths, paths, private roads, dirt roads, etc.? GPS does not count because it is the first thing to be unplugged in a worse case scenario.

10. Have you ever had to (edited to simplify from the radio version) or have the capability to hike and care for an injured party more than 5 miles from help and you do not have a cell phone that obtains a signal?

11. Have you ever had to defend yourself or a family member by using or threatening physical force? Military experience counts.

12. Do you have the equipment and have you ever used then consumed water from your purification equipment from a creek, pond, lake, stream, river, abandoned well, or muddy water in a puddle?

13. Have you ever dug and used a field latrine? Have you ever had to consider a plan for field sanitation and manage it to insure you and your family’s health?

The batteries in your amateur rig, Citizen’s Band radio, GRMS, or Shortwave receiver die; do you have an emergency power plan outside of a generator or for in the field?

15. Can you navigate using a compass or via the stars and constellations?

If you are hunkered in or forced to shelter in for a long period of time, do you have a plan to entertain your family?

17. What do you do if a family member after being sheltered in (forcibly) for a period of time reaches a point of despair so severe they consider suicide; do you have a plan to counsel him or her?

18. Are you prepared to be your family’s military and Spiritual leader?

19. Do you have a plan when/if the authorities show up at your front door (as they often do in Cuba, Communist China, North Korea, Venezuela, or the old Soviet Union, etc.) to “inspect” your home because a neighbor alleged you were violating a new “hoarding” ordinance?

20. Have you discussed your survival plans with:

No, not your dog. No, not your boss. No, not your family. No, not your Pastor or Minister.

Yes, spent some time alone on your knees with the Big Guy and asked God and the Sweet Baby Jesus for guidance in these matters?

Because without #20 having a firm “Yes” 1-19 will not matter.

Good Luck to all……
